PHOTOS: Manchester United fans mock Steven Gerrard with T-shirts and signs

Manchester United fans could not resist the chance to mock Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard before and during the club's win.

Manchester United fans were prepared for the worst last season.

It appeared that Liverpool were finally going to end their search for their first league title since 1989/90.

Agonisingly for the Reds, they blew a lead in the table with three games remaining, the turning point being the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Steven Gerrard's infamous slip led to the Blues' opening goal at Anfield that day, ironically a few after he had urged his team in from of the Sky cameras to 'not let it slip now'.

He subsequently missed out on winning the first league title of his career, and fans of rivals United are not keen to let him forget it.

T-shirts were on sale outside Old Trafford on Sunday, as pictured right, mocking the former England captain's error, ahead of the Red Devils' 3-0 win.

Even during the game, one supporter brought in a home made sign to make his point that Liverpool are still stuck on 'just' 18 league titles.

It wasn't all animosity though - there were fans who did what many would scorn upon - pose with a Liverpool and Manchester United half-and-half scarf.
